Once upon a time my depression led me to fall off the wagon and I gained a bunch of weight...AGAIN. I have always been very short so the weight became very noticeable. Members of my family would say that I was "fluffy", this hurt me and made me feel even worse about myself. I gained all the weight from emotional eating and binging. Whenever I was feeling bored/depressed I'd go to the corner store and get a whole bunch of candy and chocolate then eat it ALL!

BUT NOW...It's time for me to get back into shape again, lose that icky weight I fit for summer!

I want to be fit and active, continue to eat healthy so I can lead a healthy, happy and full-filling life!

My goal is to feel healthy, confident and strong!

*I want to lose the weight I gained.

*I want to have more energy to do the things I love.

*I want to feel STRONG and fit!

*I want to feel good about myself.

    hi! Just stopped by to see how you were doing. Based on your current status it looks like things are looking up! That's great, keep it going! Reach out if you need anything. Melody

    5/18 - Thanks for stopping by my SparkPage and adding me as a friend, I'm honored! I have added you as well so I can stop by now and again to touch base. I'm doing great and working on getting ready for my trip to Vegas - trying to figure out how I'm going to maintain my nutrition and fitness goals. It will be a challenge to say the least! At least I'll have my computer with me so I'll be checking in frequently! Melody

    5/21 - Congrats on passing 1,750 fitness minutes! You rock!

    5/24 Thanks for your Spark Goodie for my fitness minutes! I didn't even know I had reached that much. I've been at my son's and just tracked what I'm doing here (not as much as I'd like) and didn't even notice. What a nice surprise when I checked in!

    Thanks again to my wonderful emoticon
